As many of you may or may not know, our dog, Bella, is a cancer survivor and is now free of the disease. From her first diagnosis about a year ago, we immediately researched and consulted on making drastic changes to her diet. Research has shown a direct correlation between diet and cancer/diseases in dogs and in humans. Therefore, we as a family have made healthy changes and additions to our diet and are continuously researching the benefits of certain foods and vegetables.
We’ve recently been made aware of how healthy, and yummy, eating Brussels Sprouts can be! They contain many beneficial nutrients while remaining low in fat and calories. Brussels sprouts are loaded with Vitamin A, C and K, Folacin, B-Vitamin, Potassium, Calcium, Protein and even Fiber. They are part of the cruciferous vegetable family, so like broccoli and cabbage, they protect against cancer and other diseases by boosting the body’s defenses. There are may ways to incorporate this delicious vegetable into your meals. Personally, I can’t get enough of this hidden secret. I mean it, they are delicious! Below I share with you my quick and easy recipe for you to try and hopefully incorporate into your diet.
My personal recipe for Brussels Sprouts:

Slice into thirds
Place in a zip lock bag
Add Olive oil or Coconut Oil, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Italian Seasoning
Shake it up
Pour them on a foil-lined baking sheet

Serve and Enjoy!
